    Cons: The lens hood is fragile due to it\'s complex construction. I\'m at the third hood now. Requires a rather large body in my opinion.

    Pros: The lens is very fast and the picures are razor sharp.

    Summary: A very underestimated lens providing good quality pictures. The balance is best if used with an em-1 plus battery grip or em-1x. Take care not to hit anything with the lens hood

    Cons: does not have however, If I were to mention a disadvantage, it is little big for m4/3, but very small and not so heavy (800g) in comparation with other 2.8 telezoom lenses. Maybe the smallest 80-300 2.8 in the world!!

    Pros: Top optics without blemish: Sharp and contrast wide open. Nice close focus distance for closeup (0,7m). Very very fast auto focus. Extremely well built : Body is splasch proof and made of metal. It has a useful button function. Very good manual fly-by-wire mode like a good mechanical focus.

    Summary: Zuiko 40-150 2.8 pro is a very versatile zoom, which I like it a lot to use in nature for hight definition and full of details image. When you look at it and hold it in your hand you know it is an exceptional tool. This is the only zoom that I have.

    Cons: - big and heavy for a mft lens (handling on smaller mft cameras with no grip is bad; on my E-M1 I always attach the battery grip when using this lens to improve balance and handling) - tripod collar can only be attached/removed when lens is detached from the camera. - Bokeh could be a bit nicer but it is ok

    Pros: - great image quality - f2.8 and very useful focal lengths - I haven't spotted any CAs yet - weather sealed - manual focus clutch - well built - good work with sources of bright light inside the frame (far better than 12-40 f2.8)

    Summary: I really love this lens. It is a lens that gives you possibilities you otherwise would not have as a mft user. Especially in dark environments. It is not a cheap lens. But in my opinion the price is appropriate. My cons are some nit picking. Some little things that could have been improved. But overall it is my favorite lens.

    Cons: A little heavy (800g) and big (f2.8)

    Pros: Weatherproof, all metal, manual focus clutch, f2.8 constant, fast and acurate focus, very interesting lens hood, image quality, very good zoom range. In general, optional MC-14 teleconverter, top quality Olympus lens and corrrect price for the quality.

    Summary: With the M.Zuiko 12-40 f2.8 PRO and the MC-14 converter, we have 24-420mm equivalent in a really small package. Paired with the Olympus E-M1 is a top quality equipment.
